A Truly Wonderful Chicago Wedding Experience – Blog #1
February 3, 2018
Congratulations on your recent engagement! Take time to savor this moment in your life; don’t rush into planning just yet, relish in the proposal, the ring and that you’ve found your forever love. When you are ready to start planning your Chicago wedding, here are some tips on where to start and what to think about to make your day perfect.
The Wedding Date
Your wedding date is an important day in every couple’s life. Deciding what time of year, day and the timeline of the day can be daunting; allow us to help. Is there a time of year that feels significant to you and your partner? Do you both love winter and got engaged over the Chicago holidays? Or, do you both love the warm summer weather and have a vacation spot you frequent? Select two or three months time frame that you’d like to get married within and then narrow down from there. This will help you when you’re choosing a venue; allowing you to keep an open mind and potentially date, will gain you more flexibility and choice. Also, consider off seasons where there may be discounts or opportunities to bundle vendors.
The time of year can affect multiple aspects of your wedding day. For example, consider what time the sun sets on that day. It will dictate when you should host your ceremony and reception to capture the light or sunset. This may sound trivial, but you want to think about the whole day-of timeline including when you’re taking formal photos. If the sun sets at 5:30 PM and you’re planning on taking your photos after the 4:30 PM ceremony, you may miss crucial light and opportunities to get all of the photos you want.
